UNM-Gallup Students attend Senator Tom Udall Town Hall Meeting

By Marilee Petranovich

AIBA students Alan Ashley, Georgeanna Leekity, and Daisha Holyan, Staff Advisor April Coonsis, and Faculty Advisor Al Henderson with Senator Tom Udall

At the invitation of Senator Tom Udall, members of the UNM-Gallup American Indian Business Association (AIBA) attended yesterday’s Town Hall meeting to discuss the introduction of the Senator’s CREATE Act.  This recent legislation will help New Mexican artists and others working in cultural education and tourism access resources and gain support for their businesses.  Some key provisions of the CREATE Act include:

- Support by the Small Business Administration in assisting artists and entrepreneurs in obtaining financial support;

- Provision of incubators and grant programs that support the arts industry from key governmental units such as the Economic Development Administration and Rural Development Administration;

- Revised laws that give artists a more equitable tax deduction for the market value of their artwork rather than just for materials used;

- Encouragement of a more global influx of artwork to museums and educational institutions by expedition of visa processes.
